Fernhill Estate, Community Meetings
Rookwood General Cemeteries Reserve Trust is committed to conserving Fernhill Estate, whilst at the same time developing a heritage cemetery that will ensure the future of burials for multicultural Sydney.
We have entered into a due-diligence process to assess the possibility of purchasing Fernhill Estate at Mulgoa in the Penrith Local Government Area.
Our objective is to maintain the homestead and heritage landscape, ensuring it is conserved for future generations. To support this initiative we would in turn utilise the undeveloped and non bio-banked sections of the property as a predominantly lawn style cemetery.
To provide the community with the opportunity to be involved in the future of Fernhill Estate we have held 40 community engagement meetings, along with a number of meetings at a local and state government level.
During these meetings, we have presented images of the environmentally sensitive designs we are proposing for Fernhill. For more information, view our community presentation.
